Virtual Private Network for Developers

Topic Concerns: VPN for Aeonity

Recently Jim and I were looking for an effective yet affordable way to manage Aeonity's core files on the server. The core files are simply all the code that runs Aeonity. Currently the way Jim and I manage files is simply by not editing (coding) at the same time. For example, Jim will work on some code during the late afternoons and I start editing at nights. This worked well for a while, but we seemed to still be overwriting each others files. Can you imagine how annoying that can be? Two developers working on 1 or many files at different times, overwriting each others code. Well after making that mistake several times, Jim recommended that we use Windows XP VPN Server to set up a virtual private network. I guess it worked fine for a while, but what was really annoying is that it would reset some of my computers settings when I rebooted.

Well after several months of 'what can we do' we decided to look into a Virtual Private Network using a TRENDnet TW100-BRV204 Router. Below are some of the routers specs.
